Personalen var kanon! Det var VÄLDIGT centralt, allt fanns inom gångavstånd. Skulle man utanför stan så fanns busshållplats utanför hotellet. Rummet var på tok för litet för tre personer. Restaurangen som låg i anslutning till hotellet hade sur personal och de var inte ett dugg serviceminded...
Bra läge i staden. Trots storstad så var det lugnt, hördes inte mycket av trafiken. Bra hotellrestaurang/bar med bra priser. Nej.
Mycket bra centralt läge med nära till tåg till/från flygplatsen. Ett bra hotell om man vill kunna gå omkring för att lära känna staden. Nära till muséer och utmärkta bussförbindelser. Nej egentligen inte. Mitt rum vette mot en innergård som inte var så rolig, men enkelrum brukar inte ha bästa läge.
Lugnt läge fast ändå centralt. Hyfsat pris.Familjärt utan att vara lågbudget.Luftkonditioneringen fungerade utmärkt.Att få räkningen in under dörren sista natten. Saknade minibar -egentligen bara möjligheten att kyla dricka och frukostyoughurten. Lyhördhet.
Läget är mycket bra för möten i Loopområdet Inget WiFi på rummet
Young un-educated receptionist
Det fanns varken WiFi eller minibar på rummet. De drog en hotellnatt på mitt kreditkort långt innan vistelsen.
Närhet till bankdestriktet. Ganska slitet hotell
Great location for walking to a concert at soldier field Waited line for 30 minutes to check in and that was for the Hilton Honors pre-checks. Regular check in line was likely 45 minutes+. Keys to our room didn't work. Had to wait in line another 30 minutes for new keys. When we returned at midnight from TS concert and tried new keys they did not work either. Waited 45 minutes for security to open door with 3 small exhausted children. After calling 4 times for security and no luck I finally spoke to a manger and he came and let us in. Was supposed to put new keys under door overnight that was not done. Never received a working key the entire stay. Needless to stay they comped my room. I still had to pay the ridiculous $69 for parking. We will not being staying here again.
A Very Walkable City with wonderful waterfront area and Great Food at Lou Malnati's and Gene & Georgetti. Museums, Aquarium, Planetarium, Soldier Field, Jazz Clubs and Great Restaurants...Everything is centrally located in and around Grant Park which is right across the street from the HILTON CHICAGO. The bed pillows were AWFUL! mushy and no support. A minor point, that would NOT prevent me from staying there again. My biggest CON was the cost of parking $56/day (self park) or $70/day (valet), for the cost of the room it should be included. Also in-room WiFi is an additional charge, should also be included.
Loved the Luxurious Amenities this hotel offers. Our room was comfortable, cold, and dark. All we needed was a fan to soothe me to sleep and upon calling the front desk, they delivered a fan to our room. Only negative I have is that our room had poor lighting. I'm a makeup artist so lighting is key for anyone to put on makeup, let alone a professional makeup artist like myself. Upgrade the lighting please!!
Beautiful view and rooms Rooms got hot at night and had to shower to feel better about it
The location is good: close to subway, next to park, easy to get food to eat. I thought this is a 4-star hotel. When I saw the entrance of this hotel, it looks like 4-star. But when I got into the room, I thought I was in a 2-star Inn. The coffee maker is dirty, full of dust. The computer is not working and not able to off screen. The decoration of the room doesn't look like 4-star. Also, when the guest at next room used the bathroom, the loud "boom" sound would shock you. The WiFi is only free at lobby. The speed is really slow. When I refused to pay $30 for upgrade room with WiFi, the staff looked not happy. My teen girl was very disappointed for her trip to Chicago. She always wants to stay in hotel but this time she didn't want to stay longer.
Large lift lobby, never needed to wait for lifts Exorbitant price for outdated facilities. Extra charge for gym use, for 2-hour checkout extension, poor Wi-Fi coverage, HHonors login doesn't match room reservation detail. Do your wallet a favour and stay elsewhere.
Great Location and staff. Booked direct with Hilton for same price with a better cancellation policy and free WIFI for HHonors guests. Plenty of parking around hotel (spothero.com)
My hotel was right acros from the park..a short walk from the museum and aquarium, as well as a ferry to the pier! The room was clean and large, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby was beautiful! Hotel also has a large pool..was over all very impressed, would stay again on a return visit! That I had to leave!
Glasses which were used and kept aside for replacement were again kept in the same position for usage. they were not replaced just like any other utilities. overall very nice place
The amenities were great. I was given a larger room than expected with a nice (but not lake) view. The location was great and all staff were friendly and helpful. My room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. My room was also very clean and the tv had a lot of channels. Also, the building and common areas are absolutely gorgeous. I loved the gym facility and going for a swim after a stressful day. My only complaint is that there was a lot of loosely supervised young kids at the pool at 9pm. Would be nice if they had some hours for adults only.
need upgrade. Wall paper in bathroom peered off. Mattress was uneven and too soft. Too dark in the room even in the daytime.
I loved the location of the hotel. It was close to all that o came to town for. Plus the view from my room was spectacular! It was very easy to get a taxi, as the doorman did it for me. The staff was so helpful and friendly. Definitely will be returning on my next trip to Chicago! The only real complaint I can make about the hotel is the Herb n Kitchen on the main lobby floor. They claim to serve Starbucks which they do, but it tastes nothing like the real thing. The ingredients in my frap started to separate-- pretty sure te syrup was expired. But other than that, the rest of the hotel was amazing. I look forward to future stays there.
The check in was smooth and easy. Our attendant answered all of our questions and made great suggestions for food and activities. I will say, i had the BEST caramel macchiato at the Starbucks that is in this hotel. I told the barista then, and i'm saying it again now, it was hands down the best! The bed seemed really firm which is unusual for hotels, usually they are plush.
The main lobby and bar were beautiful and relaxing areas and the hotel is well maintained and clean. Rooms and bathroom were very small and the building is definitely an older building. That being said, the interiors were clean and well taken care of, and the common areas were very well kept and beautiful.
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
Location was great. Near millennium park and downtown attractions Never experienced worse hotel staff than this. From the bell man to reception to guest services
Incredibly beautiful hotel. The lobby is a masterpiece. I felt like I was transported in time...with modern amenities close by. Wish there was a refrig in the room but other than that, this trip was perfect. I plan to visit The Palmer many more times.
Location Beds were lopsided, couldn't sleep on it.
The hotel is historic, but apart from the lobby, which is impressive, the historic details are not well preserved, so overall it feels less like a grand old hotel and more like just an old and run-down hotel. The room was small; carpet was worn out; drapes hideous; no fan in the bathroom; a tray of junk food was set out on display front of the bed, which could not be moved without incurring a charge, so it was like we were sleeping in a convenience store.
Gorgeous lobby with polite staff. The bed was incredibly comfy and the room fairly clean. We had a room that shared a door with another room. It was EXTREMELY loud despite the gentlemen next door speaking in normal volume levels. They had their tv quite low, yet we could hear every word. It made us very uncomfortable. We chose not to make a fuss out of it since we had a terrible drive in and we were only staying one night. The bathroom was TINY.
Décor in the lobby was fantastic, staff in the restaurant were wonderfully attentive. Excessive noise due to an event with 200 high school and young adults. They were allowed to run up and down the stair wells until 4am even after complaining to the front desk. I expected the Palmer House to be luxury accommodations, but found in reality they do not care about their guests. Host at the Honors desk was very short and abrupt.
We had a lovely room, very well decorated. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. It was quiet and the staff was extremely personable whenever we came across them. The lobby itself is worth a visit. It's like stepping into a guided yesteryear. The paint on the back of the bathroom door was flaking. The tv is too small and it was hard to get the remote to work with it from the beds.
In the middle of everywhere I needed to be! Near read line, near great restaurants and near the bean. Bed was a bit too uncomfortable and no water pressure in shower.
Efficient and clean
Massive hotel. too big. very unpersonal. conference hotel and for group travel.
Easy walk to many restaurant, sites and public transportation.
almost everything $65 for parking at their hotel. too much for guest
From check in to check out, our stay at the Hyatt Regency was a superb experience. The staff was genuinely hospitable, and the entire facility was luxurious. The premium view is worth the extra $$$, as we had a breathtaking view of the river and lakefront. Definitely recommend. It was pricey, but definitely worth it. I really can't say anything else that was undesirable, as our stay was basically perfect.
Very clean comfortable room with a great view. Close to many areas we wanted to visit. Would definitely choose this hotel again.
Check in was busy but efficient Because it was our 10th wedding anniversary I called to have a bottle of proseco waiting for us in the room. I was told they didn't have proseco but it was listed in the menu. The walls are paper thin. So much so not only could I hear the guy next door but I could also hear the person he was talking to on the phone. came downstairs to get my car from the valet and was told it would take 20 minutes. No one said anything when I checked in and there were no instructions that allowed you to call ahead from your room. Bathroom floor was sticky. Overall, the worse hotel visit.
Bed was to soft pillows
Overall good stay here, the lobby is great with friendly front desk staff and the Big Bar is pretty cool to grab a couple drinks. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The bell hop that helped us with our bags was extremely rude and not helpful. Also the bartender we had was not very pleasant.
I enjoyed my stay. No recommendations for improvement T this time
Location was great. Staff was nice. Workout facility adequate. The BIG bar and the common spaces were really neat. no convienent way to have towels replaced. You had to call housekeeping. Also the sink was small, no place to leave personal items on sink. Couldn't use the refrigerator because it was rigged to charge you for minibar items.
Centrally located and accessible to tourist attractions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Value priced.
It was nice and in a great location They gave me a single king room with no view but I payed for a double queen with a view and even paid extra for a view room and then just gave us a free meal that sucked
Great last minute room rate. Odors in lobby and hallway. Exhaust problems from kitchen.
I stayed here for business and also leisure. I chose this hotel based off of location and it was perfectly placed near all of the great tourism spots in the city. I walked everywhere all weekend, which is a great way to burn off all the delicious food Chicago has to offer. The view from the room of the city and the Chicago river is spectacular. The hotel staff was extremely nice, accommodating and the rooms were very clean. The parking fee to keep your car there during your stay is astronomical. We received a note card saying we get a "free gift" for staying there in our room the first morning we were there. When we turned it in, it was a free vacation only if you were over 28 and married and your spouse was staying with you, which I didn't qualify for as my spouse was at home. Because of that, I received one drink with an appetizer purchase (so not a free gift if you have to buy something ) at the hotel resturant. I think gimmicks like this are insulting and a waste of the guests time.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wonderful room! At least 2 ice machines were not operational.
We loved the location, the room and the view- just didn't like being next to the elevator. Other than that- it was great!!
Wedding with loud DJ two floors above us kept us up one night. We called the desk and they seemed like they couldnt have cared less about our concern
staff super professional and freindly location is great rooms are great price to valet parking "free" WIFI in rooms, weak
Loved the view from our room. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Some of the bellhop men could be more friendly but besides that it was a very amazing stay for our family!
Great people! Helpful and personal service. We requested a river view room (def worth the extra $$!) and were surprised with an amazing corner room with the greatest views! This location is better than staying up in the Mag Mile area if you plan on seeing the sights. Short walk to Millenium Park, Art Institute, and the L. And you are right at the base of the Mag Mile. Loved being on the river more than I can say! The room was clean and comfy, not a five star hotel but a very acceptable four star. The restaurant/bar is not wonderful, but we don't go to Chicago to eat in the hotel. The shower had one of those fancy yet totally impractical giant shower heads that comes down from the center of the ceiling. A trend that needs to go away.
Everything... not the room i asked for... was lied too. telling me things would be the same and werent... not even close. will not use again.
I loved that we had a mini sofa in our room. I would have liked a mirror outside of the bathroom - 4 people had to share one mirror for hair, makeup etc.
One of the better exercise areas I've seen in a hotel. A shop downstairs for incidentals (especially water) would be nice, instead of having to walk to the nearby Seven Eleven.
Hotellets trevliga och hjälpsamma personal samt dess läge mitt i smeten. Har inget att klaga på egentligen, man får det man betalar för.
Familjärt trevligt centralt beläget hotell till bra pris frukosten är enl. Amerikanskt mått bra, bästa kaffet av de 4 hotell vi bodde på under denna trippen i USA
Everything was great!
Some may not like the smaller rooms (especially baths) but this is a very nice boutique hotel. They have done an excellent job of refurbishing a grand old building and the ambience captures the imagination. We loved it and would stay again for the good rate we got through booking.com No coffee machines and no coffee in lobby, but a coffee shop on the corner that was open at 5am.
Close to the El; convenient
Located right in the Loop of Chicago, this hotel is only 2 blocks from the Blue Line train from the airport. Free WiFi if you are a Kimpton Rewards member (or if you sign up during your stay). Free wine social hour every night from 5-6pm. You also get a minibar credit if you are a rewards member before you check in. The front entrance was a little odd - the lobby is up on the floor above and not well marked. The view out the window in my room was a brick wall.
The room was perfectly sized and extremely comfortable. Not a single thing.
location (1) the fact we provided them a different credit card to charge my bill and they said they were good and then I get my statement and they charged the original card after they said it wouldn't be charged. (2) the lines to check out were long and it took us over 20 minutes to just check out. (3) we were not made aware of the wine hour when everyone else we spoke to was. Overall experience was not the best and the purpose of our visit was to find location venues for an upcominng tradeshow - I think if we would have made them aware we would have been treated much better.
no free coffee
I arrived early morning and was so glad to be checked in and didn't have to wait until mid afternoon. The cleanliness of the hotel was great. The staff was most accommodating. The on site restaurants were very good.
Very modern hotel. No pool
The staff was rude and disrespectful. The staff.
The 5:00 PM wine hour and the interesting decor. Most of the furniture in the lobby was cool looking but not comfortable to sit on.
Stora fina rum. Utmärkt läge mitt i The Loop. Ingen frukost på hotellet (men det fanns frukostrestauranger alldeles intill).
Perfekt läge och parkering precis brevid entren. Litet rum för att vara USA men väldigt fräsht och rent
Bra läge, trevlig personal mycket prisvärt hotel, passar lika bra för week end som för arbete.
Utmärkt läge, vackert hus, fin utsikt, enkel incheckning, bra med dricksvatten att hämta själv på varje våningsplan.
Gratis rent kylt vatten. Kaffe/te-kokare på rummet.
Läget. Både bra med närhet till Blå Linjen med förbindelse till O`Hare-flygplatsen,och till shopping på S. State St. & Michigan Avenue.Personalen i receptionen var hjälpsamma och tillmötesgående Frukosten var lite tråkig ..kunde gärna vara något mer pålägg. Varför inte samarbeta med Custom House, ta något mer betalt och servera buffet frukost
Nära till amtrakstationen Att man inte kunde ordna ett frukostpaket eftersom vi lämnade hotellet klockan 4.30 på morgonen.
Bra centralt läge. Snabb incheckning och möjlighet att behålla rummet några timmar extra vid utcheckning. Den så kallade "full continental" frukosten serverades i hotell lobbyn utan möjlighet till sittplatser. Var betydligt lägre klass än på ett std motel
Large room; very clean; excellent location Lack of countertop space in bathroom
Breakfast no flexibility, no helpful staff
Very caring/warm/genuine staff. Outstanding view of park from room. Great breakfast in room and "rainfall" showerheads were very relaxing. A bit away from the shopping but they have a Bentley to help with transport. Could not secure a late check-out but hotel was fully booked so this was understandable.
large suite good for family Location far from restaurants, other popular spots. Shower drain did not work and overflowed requiring multiple staff visits. Long waits for elevators. Room adjacent to elevator. Not generally up to character of other Fairmont hotels.
A beautiful hotel in an excellent location. The best service I have ever experienced in a hotel. The room was large and beautiful. Excellent beds - I slept really well. Overall a great experience!
The fancy coffe pot in the room. Just simply give me a Mr. Coffe machine that is a no brainer. We also stayed in the room when we had to switch the clocks back. No way, no how could we figure out how to move the time back one hour. Stupid things, but iratating.
Great service and attention to detail. Very guest oriented and helpful. $50 for overnight parking.
Nära till flera sevärdheter, mycket inom gångavstånd.
centralt beläget med gångavstånd till shopping , restauranger , sevärdheter
The hotel was well located for our purposes--within walking distance of shopping and many attractions. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and staff efficient. Breakfast was the typical Hampton Inn fare which is good quality geared to a wide variety of tastes and preferences. The facility was an older building that had been retrofit. Our room was a little smaller than other Hampton's. This hotel is probably better suited to a couple than to a family with younger children. But it was efficient and did the job. Décor was funky and different which can work either way depending on perception. Overall, the space worked for us.
Location, rooms, breakfast
The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and well appointed. The location is also very close to many of the attractions that we were seeking out. within walking distance of Millennium park and Navy Pier.
I appreciated the modern design of the room and the comfort of the bed. It was quiet and yet we were merely a walk away from everything that we were interested in seeing/visiting. I wish that I did not have to call from overseas just to confirm my reservation. The front desk personel reserved a nice room for us and made sure that we were not bumped from our room. I had to confirm 30 hours prior to our arrival since I was flying in from overseas and not arriving until 7p. This hotel is also fully non-smoking which was GREAT for me! The breakfast could be better. Once they ran low on food, they did not replenish.
The location of this hotel was great. We were in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Valet and front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping service was very good. The food at the continental breakfast was great, and varied from day to day. The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast area. Where the food is served is very congested and there are not many tables.
Staff was great, very knowledgeable and quick to give recommendations and directions. Breakfast had a lot variety and protein and fresh fruit options. Walls were thin, I heard a conversation in the next room at 11pm. Also WIFI access was too complicated to log in from a smartphone that I gave up since I had very limited time in Chicago.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great Yeah, the housekeeping time were at different hours during our stay. Sometimes early sometimes later in the day. it would have been nice if the bathroom/toilet had been sealed to show they have been sanitized.
All of above. Check in very easy. Felt safe needing key to elevator upper floors. Great breakfast. Staff warm welcoming very helpful. Found an empty Jack Daniels fifth bottle under bed. Not ours.
Location, cleanliness, staff. Its a minor thing, but choices of pillows are too thick for side and stomach sleepers. Parking expense.
The room was comfortable and large enough to have a small sitting area. I liked the extra high ceilings because the room felt much larger than the floor space. The beds were comfortable and the furniture in good condition. There was a complementary coffee and tea bar in the lobby with fresh fruit and sometimes cookies. This was a nice stop over before heading back to the room. The breakfast closes on the dot at 10am. This isn't convenient because younger people (I'm 28 years old) like to sleep in a little later. I prefer to get going around 10 or 11am. This is a simple fix, extend the breakfast hours by an hour. I'd like to see more plants indoors at this hotel because the city starts to wear on me after a while and getting a fix of nature is relieving.
The room was very clean and the bed was awesome. I liked the color choices for the room.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially the woman at the front desk when we checked in. The location was excellent for walking and conveniently situated to mass transit. It was all pretty okay.
Free breakfast in the morning. The eggs were questionable though. My toilet didn't work.
I like the location the best. Breakfast was ok but maybe offer more choices. Room had a mold smell and door locks were very loud when closing.
Having managed a hotel myself previously, I was pleased with how friendly, helpful, and quick the staff were in their attention to guests. Very clean and welcoming.
